Hi, I'm Sarah.

I am a dog trainer with more than 5 years experience working with dogs. I have worked with many fearful and axious dogs, rehabilitating them to be able to function in the lives of their owners.

Through my experience I have build a strong understanding of how my actions and interractions effect a dog's state of mind. Now I want to make a positive difference in the world through teaching others these fundamental skills so they can live more fulfilling lives with their pets.

I also see the necessity in helping other people to learn these skills so they can be a part of this movement. This is where Canine Calm Walks comes in. Through training others to have the skills to walk dogs and help owners who may not have the time to do it themselves, together we can all make a bigger positive impact in the lives of dogs and people!
